Does anyone have one of these? I was thinking of buying one and was wondering how they are? Reliable, powerful,? I heard that Tanaka doesn't actually build this blower themself is that true? Engine made by Kawasaki, frame by soemone else ect??? What brand do you guys reccommend?

Any help would be appreciated.

The 7600 had a kawasaki engine. I think it was made by Maryuma(I have no clue on their spelling...sorry).

The 7800 is made by Redmax. I think its very similar to their 7001 or whatever the 7000 series is.

I shipped 2 trimmers to Iowa and the regular groung was over $ 45 If its over a certain size UPS puts a surcharge on it You can do the UPS math at UPS.com my Zip is 08318 I would say the box would weigh about 25lb and dimensions 30x30

You can call me at 856-364-8131
